Somers Senior Center

 

The Town of Somers Senior Center is open to all residents ages 55+. There is no membership required. All seniors are welcome! It is our goal to create a warm and welcoming environment where seniors feel at home and can take part in social, educational and recreational activities.

Hours:  Monday-Friday 8am-4pm

The Somers Senior Center will remain closed until further notice due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

We hope you and your family are staying healthy during this time of uncertainty. We look forward to rolling out a re opening plan when we feel it is safe to do so, until then feel free to contact the Senior Center if you have questions, concerns, or are in need of assistance.

Dial A Ride is providing transportation for medical appointments, employment, and hair and footcare services at this time please continue to schedule a week prior when possible.  Our Dial A Ride drivers are also providing grocery delivery from Geisslers in Somers for no charge, please contact the Senior Center for more information.

CHOICES Counseling

The Somers Senior Center offers CHOICES counseling. CHOICES stands for Connecticut’s program for Health insurance assistance, Outreach, Information & Referral, Counseling and Eligibility Screening. Free and objective information, counseling and assistance is available to older adults and persons with disabilities enabling them to understand and exercise their rights, access and receive benefits to which they are entitled, and make more informed decisions about quality of life issues. CHOICES is also an excellent Medicare resource for individuals who are “New to Medicare”, for example, just turning 65 years old or eligible for Medicare because of a qualifying illness or disability. Trained CHOICES staff can help consumers navigate life’s stages while reducing the stress and confusion. Counselors do not sell insurance.

Meals on Wheels

If you or someone you know is homebound and unable to grocery shop/prepare meals, they may be eligible for Meals on Wheels. The program is available to residents of Somers who are considered homebound for a fee of $4.00 per hot meal and $3.00 per cold meal. Financial aid is available to those who qualify.

volunteers-needed

We are in need of volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels. If you or someone you know is willing to donate your/their time to this important program, please contact Christina at 860-265-7551 for more information.
